This sleek handsome fella was surrendered to the Vernon SPCA when his owner fell ill and was no longer able to care for him.

Gatsby tends to be a tad shy at first but warms up quickly to gentle handling especially if you have treats. Once he trusts you he is quite affectionate and even playful.

Gatsby lives in the shelter communal with two other cats and gets a long well with them. A home with other cats would likely be okay for him.

For more information about Gatsby contact the staff at the Vernon SPCA. His animal ID number is 466941.

Visit the shelter's webpage for more information such as location, adoption fees and hours of operation.
